top 10 worst twist endingsThese days it seems that part of the requirement of any suspense thriller is the big reveal; the moment of truth; the I-never-saw-it-coming twist ending. In anticipation of “The Happening” (opening Friday) and its director M. Night Shyamalan, the man single-handedly responsible for the commercial rebirth of the twist ending (thanks a lot, “The Sixth Sense”!), Eric presents his list of the worst offenders in recent memory. Click here to check out the Top 10 Worst Twist Endings.

    So…………..are you serious?
    Saw has one of the best twist endings ever, and is actually the move that got me into movies with twist. Also, if you say that nothing leading up to that would make us suspect that he is there, then let me offer you this advice next time you watch the movie, LISTEN! In one of the crime scenes there is a separate room with a peep-hole, presumably designed so that the killer could get front row seats to his own sick shows. This was stated by one of the detectives and to anyone of a good amount of intelligence, was a clue to the fact that, somehow, he is watching this game as well.
    Also, the point of the whole thing is to make the decisions hard. I mean come on, what would you choose if your only options were cut off your leg and get out or go home without any problems. Seriously, I don’t want to know what you guys think a GOOD twist is, because before you say it, Usual Suspects is NOT a good twist.

    Wow… I missed this post while I was in Iraq.

    I don’t mind most of the list. The Planet of the Apes remake was DEF number one, and even though I like M. Night (with the exception of The Happening) I can see why some might not.

    But saying The Game sucked!!!! Holy shit! I love that fucking movie! But everyone is entitled to their opinion I guess.

    And Matt… how can you say The Usual Suspects isn’t good!? It’s a modern classic by almost EVERYONE’s standards!
